sanders is aboard the research vessel in the north atlantic where that difficult work is going on. kerry, good evening. >> reporter: lester, i'm down in the belly of the vessel right now where if i put on these 3-d glasses, i can see the images in 3-d. let me take you down there. you are now looking at it in 2-d because folks don't have 3-d televisions at home or the glasses. we are two miles down there. you're only seeing these 2-d images, but either way, it's a stunning view of what was once called the unsinkable "titanic." on an evening shrouded in fog much the way it was almost 100 years ago when "titanic" hit an iceberg here, crews launched the remotely operated vehicle into the deep. fixed with an array of cameras, it descends two miles down. billy lang was the first to spot the wreckage of the "titanic" 25 years ago. it was his idea to come back now with 3-d hd cameras. >> we are seeing things we haven't seen before and seeing things we've seen before in a different way. >> go as easy as you can. we're getting a lot of hits right now. >> reporter: the expedition team all wearing s

a nightmare and a miracle. nbc's kerry sanders is in miami with one american couple's harrowing story. good morning, kerry. >> reporter: the national transportation safety board has a team of investigators from washington, d.c. now en route to the scene of where this crash took place. the 737 took off from bogota, colombia and crashed on its approach. as you know, for everybody on board but for one, this was the unluckiest day in their life, but also the luckiest. on the tiny resort island of san andres, they're calling this disaster, the miracle. remarkably, all but one of the 125 passengers and six crewmembers survived the crash landing. the one death was ruled a heart attack. among the survivors, 48-year-old david bolino and his pregnant wife carolina. these pictures were snapped on a cell phone and e-mailed no nbc news. the couple from suburban atlanta were on vacation, but are now both in the hospital, side by side, fingers pointed in the air to god, thankful to be alive. >> it's a miracle because there's no way i can explain a plane breaking up into four pieces at that speed. there's
. kerry sanders on the north atlantic sea w. an ocean around, you are ready to jump in it, kerry. tell us about the fascinating story. >> reporter: i know. it is incredible. the think we are out here in the north atlantic with the expedition team. we are about 120 miles now south-southeast of newfoundland out of st. johns. beautiful day. little bit of rain. swells have been about three feet or so. we had spinner dolphin out here. giving us a little bit of a show as the teams are getting ready for what is going to be their first test as we make our way to the site of where the "titanic" went down. this is called an r.o.v. remotely operated vehicle and doing work on it right now. this is something that's really never been done at the "titanic" site. what they're going to do, if you see on the front, these cameras, right here, we have some cameras, over here, over here, those are the high def cameras. down here you have high def 3d cameras and then, of course, so dark down there. you have got the lights that will come on. what they're planning on doing here, they're coming on there. testing
ship. it shouldn't be long before we catch our first glimpse of those pictures. kerry sanders has been following the expedition from the very beginning, how long before we see those pictures, kerry. >> reporter: we're waiting, it could be about ten, 12 hours before mary ann sfwurfaces. all of the professors here like mary ann and ginger, get the connection to of course "gilligan's island" for some of our younger audiences that don't know. they sat them down and they're taking a side scan sonar images of a relief map down there. but they're also taking digital images as they go along and flash them down. but what i'm really waiting for are those 3-d hd images. so come with me as we walk on board of this research vessel. we're at sea, and we're rolling a little bit,and dwayne scott has the camera so we don't want to move too quickly. this is the r.o.v., while the team is still working on it, they have got a lot out here, on the other side, right over there on the water side, that's where those 3-d hd cameras are. and they're trying to figure out whether they have all of the connections t
and nbc's kerry sanders on board in the north atlantic sea where they're just hours away from beginning the first ever 3d map of the wreckage. kerry, another beautiful day. i hope danielle, hurricane danielle is going to miss you and miss this group while they do all this work. >> reporter: yeah. they're watching it very closely. funny thing is talking about blackberries, my iphone works out here. not like we're picking up a signal 400 miles away from newfoundland. anyway, look. they have done some really incredible stuff already this morning and they launched the auvs, the autonomous underwater vehicles. they look like torpedos here. we have video of one going down. see that going down there? it is going down to take side scan sonar as well as to take some flashing pictures down below. mark's here with me. they're now deployed? >> yes. we have both vehicles in the water. they're our second vehicle just deployed heading down now to the bottom. the first vehicle was put in, oh, must have been about, six or seven hours ago now. >> reporter: going down and mowing the yard? >> that's correc
out there, kerry sanders, thank you so much. >>> governor chris christie isn't the only one who thinks that jersey shore is bad for the garden state. qinnipiac university found out that 51% of new jersey residents surveyed have an unfavorable view of the show. brian is the editor of "p doing a poll on the jersey shore. >> it's amazing, part of the reason they're doing it because the governors of new york and new jersey is getting into this shouting match about who or what is to blame for the cast's bad behavior. really kind of politics at its worst, if you ask me. i have to wondfer these people who voted unfavorable of the show were among the 5.1 million viewers who watched it the premiere episode of this past season. >> i understand that their finale actually beat all the networks. i mean, is it, what do you think it is? like you're watching a train wreck, what is it? >> a little bit of train wreck appeal, too. what's interesting is they keep talking about new jersey and how much of a role that plays. but much of the season took place in miami. how can we say that
first glimpses from the tamed tomb of the titanic. nbc's kerry sanders has been following this expedition from the very beginning and he's live for us. >> reporter: we are this close to getting those 3-d images which is really exciting. but they have made significant progress today, so from out here on the boat, let me take you into the lab now, we're going to move a little slowly here because we are rocking at sea, as cameraman dwayne scott comes along with me. this is where they have been doing a lot of the work. and we're going to come back over here to an area where that autonomous under water vehicle that you were talking about has been doing it's work, it's called an auv. it's a yellow looking torpedo. it goes out on its own and it sends out side scan sonar and then it brings back images. well, 20 hours plus later, it's made its way to the surface. ed gallows here, i want to ask thomas, take a look at this image, thomas, i'm going to step out of the way, and let's see how good your eyes are, what do you think that is? >> don't put that pressure on me that you know i'
where kerry sanders is on board the ship. it's a tech no logical feat and we're so glad you're bringing it to us. where do things stand this morning? >> reporter: it takes 3-d ghass and a special monitor. i put these on and look out and i can reach out and feel like i'm right there at the bow. as we switch to the feed which you're getting in 2-d, they are looking right at the bow of the titanic. i almost feel like we need to see celine deon music. i'm the king of the world, where he stood in the movie. this is not hollywood. this is the real science of what's going on. among those who are here is historian stevenson who is making a documentary here. as you look at some of this first of all right here, i'm just amazed, the railing is still right there. i think i can see a little bit of a chain down there. are you just sort of taken? i know you've been down in a submarine before and looked through the tiny porthole, 7 to 9 inches. when you see it here, what do you think? >> this is like being outside the submersible, like being at the wreck site. if you had no pressure on your body and ab
complete picture of the wreckage. coming up, the latest on this from nbc's kerry sanders who is lucky enough to be live aboard the vessel carrying out that delicate mission. plus, also, you might remember anna chapman. she is that accused russian spy busted here in the u.s. and sent back to moscow. we'll, she's not keeping such a low profile, posing for a new provocative photo shoot. we'll get into that a little bit later on this morning. >>> first, back to new orleans and matt for his reporting from there. matt? >>> ann, thank you very much. and i'm joined by nbc's lester holt. he was one of the first people here in this region following hurricane katrina. he joins me this morning five years later to look back. lester, good morning. >> matt, good morning. i spent time in mississippi and here in the immediate aftermath. so much devastation. so many lives altered. we came back to remember how it all played out and talked to some of the people we met along the way to see if life has gotten back to normal. it was a big storm, but it was a little voice that reminded us it didn't have to b
. kerry sanders joins us now. kerry? >> reporter: chris, we have made our way back here to safe harbor because of hurricane danielle approaching right to the exact location where we were right over titanic. the ship's captain says it would not be safe to stay there. we agreed because it was about 40-foot seas out there. before we left we were able to get extraordinary images. two miles down a view of titanic's wreckage line none other. railings, the ship's steering wheel called a telemotor. the bathtub is porcelain and mostly preserved at the frigid depth. along the side that hit the iceberg side late in 1912 and sankless than three hours later on the 15th. portholes, some still with glass reflecting the camera's lights. and the squares are windows to the state rooms on b-deck, where the millionaires traveled. at the surface on board the research vessel, expedition members gathered in a dark control room. >> it will be coming up. >> a hushed awe as they watched the monitor revealing an inch-by-inch movement of the 3-d cameras. >> the scientists will be her in port for about a week. the
. let's bring in kerry sanders. he has been following the scientific mission from the north atlantic and, kerry, where we will get to see the new picture of the "titanic" we're close now, correct. >> we are right there. probably in the next couple hour physical not tonight. we are onboard the research vessel and a lot of activity. i'll take you over here, over to the port side where, well, they're cleaning up some of the mess. that's a really good sign that they're cleaning up because that means the rov is set and ready to go. that remotely operated vehicle there. they did a thing called the bounce test today where they take it down and check to make sure it has its neutral buoyancy. you don't want it to be too heavy and go down too quickly or if it's too light it stays that surface. it is a 3-d cameras are onboard and we'll get those pictures really soon. they're talking about in possibly the next couple of hours maybe as late as midnight. but i tell you what, i'm sitting at the edge of the seat because we are right over the bow according to the gps coordinants. first ever seeing this i
specialized scientists set off from st. john's newfoundland. nbc's kerry sanders is traveling with this group. joining me now live from the north atlantic sea. and kerry, this will be a huge, momentous task. explain the people involved in this. >> reporter: there are so many people here. and it's a good time to join us as we're off the coast here. i'm with jim delgado. while we talk to you, let's look over here. and first of all, that's known as an rov, remotely operated vehicle. you're excited because? >> because this is going to capture some incredibly imagery that we can use to map the wreck of titanic. >> reporter: and right on the front there. it's not just regular cameras? >> no, it's not. those are high-definition cameras that are going to give us three-dimensional imagery. >> reporter: what does it add to your understanding of the wreck? >> it gives us, pardon the pun, depth. it allows us to measure this site and plot it and map it. >> reporter: i thought we knew everything we needed to know about the titanic. it was discovered in '85, it's been visited numerous times. >> we don't kno
detailed map ever of the titanic wreck site. and nbc's kerry sanders has had the plum position of being on board that expedition where the ship's crew had to relocate quickly thanks to hurricane danielle. that's why they're on the move. hi, kerry. what's the latest from there? >> reporter: well, the "jean charcot" is on the move and i'm not sure the picture shows the feeling i have here, but if you look at the horizon in the background, you can see the seas are changing and that's why we are moving here. let's take a look at those pictures down below because it was an extraordinary day for the expedition team. here you're seeing in 2d. we were looking in 3d hd pictures. never before has the titanic wreckage been photographed as it is. here you see it in stunning, stunning high definition. those pictures are helping the archaeologists come to some sort of conclusions, although they certainly haven't reached them completely yet because there's so much more work to do here. but in terms of how the titanic broke apart after it hit the iceberg in 1912. more than 1,500 people drowned if in th
-create the most detailed map over of site. the work is not done nor is the work of kerry sanders on board the expedition. you guys have hit the road, so to speak. what's up out there? >> reporter: yeah. finding safe harbor because of danielle somewhere back there. we're heading in a northwest position at about ten knots which hopefully is fast enough to get out of the way of danielle. of course, with the captain making the decision it was the smartest thing to do, it had a lot to do with timing because right here is that rov. and this is what has cameras on board, they had to get that up and it was two miles down. it takes hours to retrieve it. let me take you two miles down and look at these spectacular images. an extraordinary day for the folks out here. rms "titanic" with the assembled scientists and archaeologists could not be happier. they were able to gather information that has not been gathered before because what 3d allows them to do is see relationships between areas like the bow where one of the life rafts would have been launched from to see where it was in an up position or d

about 1,000 miles due east of boston, massachusetts. kerry sanders joins us live. you're at the spark of envy, let me assure you. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, alex. this is amazing. because we're now in the control room. this is the hive where all the activity is happening. these are the 3-d glasses. i'm going to reach over here and hit the switcher. i'm going to take you to what are the live pictures of the hd 3-d camera down below. parks stevenson is here with me. he's a titanic historian. and we see the cameras backed off the bow for a second. explain what we're looking at. what is this? >> this is the star bird side of "titanic," it's up on the far part of the ship where all the anchor chains and gear are. >> reporter: it was 1912 when the "titanic" went down hitting an iceberg. which side of the ship did the iceberg hit? and will we see where it hit? >> along the star bird side, down low near the water line. that part of the wreck is now buried in the mud line. and you can only just see the area where the iceberg might have hit down near the mud. >> reporter: we have
737 passenger plane crashed and broke into three pieces. nbc's kerry sanders has the very latest and you had a compelling report earlier. may have been a lightning strike that caused this chaotic landing. tell us more. >> reporter: well, let's first of all focus on what the investigators are going to look at and a lot of us fly and when you hear lightning strike it might cause you to be a little concerned. it is not that the lightning strike hit the plane causing an engine failure. what the investigators are going to look at here is whether that lightning strike was as the plane was coming in. hit the nose or in front of the plane and was so bright that the brilliance of it blinded the pilots as they were bringing the lane in. causing them to perhaps descend faster than the ground they realized because they augustered into the ground about 300 feet shy of the runway and then moving down the runway breaking into at least three distinct pieces there. as you point out, remarkable that folks survived. five americans on board the plane. i was able to reach two of those americans on th
because of hurricane danielle. we get a report from nbc kerry sanders. >> more than two miles down, the images are extraordinary. the "titanic" like she's never been seen before in 3-d, hd. his bath tub's porcelain, still polished. windows on the b deck, some still with unbroken glass 98 years later. because of hurricane danielle the expedition had to come to safe harbor in newfoundland. why did this unsinkable ship with 16 water tight compartments sink on april 15th, 1912, after it struck an iceberg. in the movie "titanic" it cuts a gash but the experts think that's just a theory. they are yet to find that gash. when the scientists return to the site in a week they may now know where to look for answers thanks to newly created maps. those new maps of the ocean floor here reveal at least three areas of "titanic" debris that no one even knew existed. >> i'm excited about this because this represents new opportunities and new clues to answer questions about how titanic broke apart and sank. >> reporter: now, for the first time since the wreckage was discovered 25 years ago, archeolog
kerry sanders is on board of expedition ship and we h have a live report coming up. >>> and it was five years ago tomorrow when hurricane katrina swept through new orleans. on my return trip there this week, i spoke with some of the key players who tried to manage the disaster and who in some cases stirred up their own storms of controversy in the process. a lot to get to, but first the big rally taking place in washington today. nbc's tom costello is covering it for us. good morning. >> reporter: lester, good morning. in fact, people started arriving this morning before the sun was up here to watch the sunrise. glenn beck claim this is is all about reclaiming he says america's civil rights movement. the trouble is he's doing it this on the anniversary of the iconic march on washington back in 1963 and martin luther king's "i have a dream" speech. he also says this is about restoring honor. his words to america. they plan to honor america's fallen heros as well as those who have served overseas and who have fought and died in america's war. the trouble is there is this, of course, this
in the atlantic. we'll get al's forecast in a moment. first, let's turn to nbc's kerry sanders who just happens to be aboard a research ship mapping images of the wreck of the "titanic." that project is on hold as the ship steers clear of hurricane danielle. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. we're shrouded in fog this morning in the north atlantic and we have about ten miles to get ahead of the storms which have already caused serious problems on the east coast. up and down the east coast dangerous rough surf slams the beaches. >> the waves are big. >> reporter: from daytona, florida -- >> the surf has really picked up. >> reporter: -- to ocean city, maryland, where there were hundreds of rescues and a 23-year-old man disappeared while swimming in the rip tide. >> i love you. please come back home. >> reporter: rip currents from danielle, a distant hurricane, led to at least two drownings. >> if you're a nonswimmer and intend to stand in waist deep water, you're pulled into water that's over your head, you have a drowning situation. >> reporter: danielle churned through the

trying to create the first-ever 3 d virtual map of the kerry sanders in new finland. i was riveted by your coverage all weekend long. even without the 3d glasses we could realize how impressive this was. any idea how long they will be on hold? >> probably about a week. i'm very glad we did come ashore. the captain on board here said he believed with hurricane danielle and then the storm following behind, that we might have seas of 40 feet. i did not want to bounce around on this 243 foot research vessel with 40-foot waves and rolling seas out there. peter, i happen to know you know what it's like to be trapped on a ship. >> 23 long days. >> trapped by the ice. >> up in the northwest passage. i'm glad that our captain made that decision. so we're back here. but the team had a tremendous amount of success in the first week of the expedition. they are going to be doing this when they go back out. it's a full month long mission. the video down below is just remarkable. it's extraordinary pictures in 3d hd. the cameras floated down on rov. the pilot flying them into places that are extr

. it now rests 400 miles south of newfoundland where kerry sanders is doing anything but resting. kerry, good morning again. >> reporter: it's so strange to be out in the north atlantic and be inside this inner hive of activity where things seem to be so reverrant and calm. we're going to take you live. we're going two miles down and we're now two miles down with the hd 3-d picture that's being transmitted back to the surface here. the group of arc yol gifts are looking at the various parts of the ship again. some parts which have never been fully documented as they are doing right now. i believe we're still looking at the starboard side. >> we're at the prom nad deck level forward on the starboard side. up above would be the bridge. we're looking at an area where people have looked in and had a bit of a view before. this is the most detailed look we've ever had of this spot. >> reporter: it almost seems unreal to have the 3-d glasses on and viewers are watching it in 2-d. even that is stunning. >> i've dived on lots of ship wrecks, this is like diving down there except i don't have to
. johns newfoundland on monday. kerry sanders has been with the expedition from the very beginning. kerry, how you doing? >> well, chris, it's so odd to think it was 100 years ago, 1912, the titanic was in these waters, frigid north atlantic water, hit an iceberg and sank. and today, look out here. it's in the high 60s, the water is calm. it's a beautiful day here. but we right now are over the site where the titanic went down. the debris field is about two miles down below us. and as you noted, before the scientists began their work today, they did pause for a moment with some flowers to recognize the lives lost here. more than 1,500 people died when the titanic went down. now, the work they're going to do, and this is what they're getting ready to do, is launch some very high-tech equipment. right here, what looks like a torpedo, this is an auv, an autonomous unmanned vehicle. they dropped the transponders into the water, which will communicate with this. and this will go down and begin mapping underneath with sky scan sonar and take pictures down there as well. once this comes up, they
that they are making some really great progress. nbc's kerry sanders is live with what that group wants us to see, all this action. kerry, when this is all done, are we going to be able to peek through the "titanic's" portholes? it's going to be that accurate? >> reporter: it should be even more accurate than that, because it will be hd, 3-d images, once it's launched. and the progress, indeed, is already happening. those underwater cameras are not in yet. what has launched are what are known as the aubs. as you see them here, they look like torpedos. one is named marianne, the other is named ginger, which is a reference to gilligan's island. but marianne and ginger are in the water, they're preprogrammed and go down to about 40 or so feet from the bottom, and then they go along in sort of a mowing the lawn pattern, back and forth. marianne goes east and west, ginger goes north and south, and they're sending out side sonar. that's building a relief map. if you remember when you were in grade school, you put your hands on them and you can feel the mountains, it's building one of those maps. and once th
